A meeting will be held on Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 15, at 2:30 p.m. at Lee City Hall to announce the results of a recent questionnaire sent out by the United States Postal Service.
At least 60 percent of the votes from the survey will be needed to keep the Lee Post Office Open. Should the numbers not reflect that percentage and the USPS decides to close the office, people may have to go to Live Oak or Jennings to pick up packages and would likely have to go to Madison to conduct any in-person postal service or have to do postal business online.
This move could potentially hurt many residents with a Lee Post Office address who are transportation disadvantaged and who may not have access to a computer or be computer literate.
The people of Lee are asked to show up and voice their support to keep the local post office open.
